2016 J M W Turner Wall Calendar


Joseph Mallord William Turner (British, 1775–1851) took up landscape painting in part to fund his Royal Academy education. Although a Londoner all his life, Turner enjoyed plein-air sketching near the River Avon in Bristol while still in his teens, which inspired the nickname “Prince of the Rocks.” Exhibiting unusual complexity and expressive power, his paintings incorporated history, literature, and myth and made startling use of light and color. The twelve works reproduced in this calendar are part of the Tate Collection.
